God does not exist to some people

Many times some people believe that God does not exist, but the devil does. Is it because they are so misled or they just don’t know the truth?

There are some that keep asking for proof that God exists. Who woke you up this morning? Who gave you the breath you’re breathing? Who created you? It’s not your mother, she gave birth to you. Who created man, the universe, etc? We could go on and on forever.

Do you think man could have done that? Like the Bible said in PSALMS 14:1- “The fool says in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable work, there is none that doeth good.”

To those that don’t believe that God exists that’s your right, no one can make you believe, only God can if you ask Him, but there is one thing I know: there is a God, who sits up high and looks down low. If God don’t exist then who created the devil? (your master). There are some people that believe God sends people to hell, but that’s not really true; men and women choose hell first, then God grants them their wish. We are the ones that make that choice. Hell was never created for men and women, it was created for the devil and his angels. REVELATION 20:1 and 2 – “And I saw an angel come down from heaven having the keys of the bottomless pit (hell) and a great chain in his hand.” Vs. 2-“And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan and bound him a thousand years.”

There are some who ask about the mother of God. God Almighty has no mother for he is a spirit. Mary is the Mother of Jesus Christ. JOHN 4:24-God is a spirit: and they  that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Mary needed a Saviour just like you and I need a Saviour.

Two of the most difficult groups of people who don’t believe in God are the very rich and the very poor. Most rich people will tell you that they can take their jet plane and travel the  world, live anywhere they wish, purchase whatever they want, so why  believe in God?

The very poor will tell you ‘why should he believe in God when he is that poor?’ Or ‘why is God not helping him get out from his poverty’ not knowing that God didn’t put him in this situation. It is sin that put him (us) in that situation, not God. ROMANS 3:23-For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

And  what’s  so sad is that God wants to remove him/her from  that situation, but sin has crippled  his/her mind that the body  doesn’t want to move, Only God can make us free. JOHN 8:36-“If the son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

Man cannot change himself, unless God changes him. Prison reforms a man, but it doesn’t change him. May God keep blessing Dominica, Love and best wishes always.

Repentance Prayer: Heavenly Father I now realize I am a sinner, and that you sent your only son to die for me at Calvary. I now accept the death  of Jesus Christ  as the payment for my sins, forgive me for all my sins, wash me in the blood of Jesus Christ, I now accept you Lord as my Master, Lord and Saviour through Christ Jesus, Amen.

    Do you know how many women got pregnant by gods?? read some greek mythology and you will see the number of half god children there are out there.. Greek myth is about 2000 yrs older than Christianity not to mention the number of Egyptian half gods that did the same thing and egyptian culture is 2000 yrs older than greek culture… I mean if your gonna have a religion at least be original about it. Mary did not sleep with god or the holy spirit… you know what sex with spirits is called {spectrophelia/sex with light} nothing to do with god just too much date wine

      Montoire: If you chose not to believe the gospel nobody can make you believe. But for your own sake please be careful how you speak about the faith. The Biblical record of Jesus being conceived by the Holy Spirit did not come from ancient mythology or folklore. In the Book of Genesis after Adam sinned God promised Adam and Eve a woman would give birth to the Redeemer who would bruise satan’s head (figuratively) and bring salvation. It was revealled to the Old Testament prophet Isaiah that the Saviour would come by the power of the Holy Spirit via a miracle virgin birth. The people of God knew this. They waited for it. Young women wistfully hoped they would be the one God would choose. In the Old Testament this is referred to as “the desire of women” and “the desire of the nations”. Satan himself – the source of heathendom and author of all false religion – new and trembled. He created imitations. No doubt the expectation of Israel became known in heathen lands. From this came the various stores of god-woman births we find in Greek mythology and Egyptian folklore. However, you should know that the birth of Jesus Christ fulfilled over 200 Old Testament fulfilled over 200 very precise prophecies telling the race from which He would be born, the tribe, the family, the virgin, the circumstances of His birth, and even the exact year and month of His birth, His life, ministry, teachings, betrayal, crucifixion, burial, and resurrection: some of these things in incredible detail. A Greek physician and historian by the name of Luke researched the story of his birth and reported his findings. Luke also researched the story of the resurrection. He became a Christian and a co-worker with the Apopstle Paul in the preaching of th gospel. Montoire, this man – Jesus Christ – took the guilt of all your sins upon Himself and bore them to dark Calvary. WHEN HE WAS ON THE CROSS YOU WERE ON HIS MIND! How can you refuse Him now? 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, John 3:16, Revelation 3:20. Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecostal Evangelist. http://www.livinghopeministries.ca |

    @THE PASTOR NEVER SAID MARY WAS SINLESS,FOR ALL HAVE SINNER.

  7. August 19, 2010

    Ananymous, I agree with your suggestion that Mary humbled herself, that God Almighty would do His work through her. I will always believe that Mary’s manner of conception was the way God planned for mankind to conceive and reproduce. Except that Adam allowed Satan to defile that plan of God.

    Most people fail to understand that human beings have a sinful nature because of the way we were conceived. King David, as he confessed his sins to God, he said: “In sin did my mother conceive me”. Jesus told Nicodemus: You must be born again”. The apostle John explains that nature of rebirth by saying it does not happen “through the will of the flesh”. Jesus again told Nicodemus: “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but Spirit gives birth to Spirit”.

    We hear Mary saying to the Angel Gabriel, “Let it be done to me according to Your word,” and right after she spoke those words the angel left her. God, Eternal Spirit, became Flesh, in the Body of Jesus Christ, that He might represent the perfect Lamb which He needed for a sacrifice of burnt offering, in the same manner He atoned with the people of Israel, through the flesh and blood of rams, lambs, goats, bulls, calves, oxen, doves and pigeons, in the days of old.

    But that did not mean that God stopped existing in Spirit and Truth. That is the reason God is a Trinity–three characters–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but One God, in Spirit and Truth. We hear Jesus telling His disciples that “I am in the Father and the Father is in me”. We also hear Him saying that the flesh surfeits nothing. So Jesus never relied on His fleshly strength; He functioned by the Authority of Eternal Spirit, Christ, who lived in Him. In other words Jesus continually lived the Life of Spirit and Truth, even if He looked like a human being.

    All of those animals that God called for the Israelites to sacrifice to Him, had to be perfect, meaning that they were not supposed to be internally sick or having any form of scars on the outside of their bodies. But the Israelites needed to constantly offer the flesh and blood of animals to God for all sorts of sins. As a perfect Lamb Jesus offered Himself to God for our sin atonement once and for all. We can only partake of this atonement, if we can apply faith to believe and to receive.

    That is why God needed a woman like Mary, not because she was sinless. Sinless means being pure. As human beings we can only become pure as we continue to accept the cleansing or sanctification of Jesus’ Blood. But Mary had the character of obedience, and the virtue of humility and trust, which allowed God to work through her. She was also a woman who had not known no man.

    I just to need to point out to you, Ananymous, that I cannot find the part where Pastor Rawls said that Mary was a sinless woman as you said he did.

    And to those of you who questioned him, Pastor Rawls is correct, God is of Spirit and Truth, He does not have a mother. Eternal Spirit, God, has no beginning and no end–the Alpha and the Omega. Jesus calls God, FAther, how could Mary be God’s mother?.

    Mary is the mother of the human Jesus, the Word of God, when He said “Let there Light”. Those are the Word which became Flesh, Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

    The apostle John tells us about the Word, Jesus Christ: “In Him there was Life and the Life was the Light of men.” “Let there be Light”, is not the light of the sun, moon, and stars, it is the Life of men that God formed in Jesus Christ, by His spoken words.

    When your soul is revived or reawakened, you become alive through the formation of Spiritual Light within you. When Jesus says that the flesh surfeits nothing, He is saying that there is no Life in the flesh. We simply exist in flesh and blood, and without the Light of Jesus Christ, we are just waiting to pass away and to go back to our original form of dust.

    Another name for that nature of Light in your soul is Love. For God is Love, and when you are born again you are born of Life in the Spirit, by which you begin to practice and demonstrate the traits of Love through your attitude and conducts..

    Don’t depend on your feelings to convince you of that Truth. Feelings is of the flesh, there is all sorts of them; they are here today and they are gone tomorrow. But apply faith, and faith will manifest spiritual enlightenment into your mind from your conscience. That is the time you just have the utmost desire to live and live on, but for the glory of God, in Jesus Christ. When you know that this is Love that you are experiencing, do not withhold it. Tell the world that you are born of God. In so doing you give Him great delight.

    @Gary:

    It is not my concern what happens to people pertaining disasters and in different countries. You and I have to face the fact and the truth. Please put on your thinking cap on.
    Godless people and those who do not obey the Laws of God, whether they are religious or not do contribute to it. They can bring down the wrath of God upon us. There are more godless people today than there were in previous years. In this age of godlessness, immorality and apostasy, the number is increasing. This also pertains to the governments of the world even though they are Christians and practice the faith. God will take care of them in time. They will not escape His fair and just recompense.
    Read and follow the news. The Brazilian and Mexican governments of all are corrupt ones. Let me inform you further. Canada, the US and no doubt Great Britain financially assist those countries and also the third world countries. What have they done with the money of taxpayers which these governments generously donated to assist “their nationals”. They live in beautiful homes; have personal airplanes, live lavish lives and are able to eat the best type of foods while their people are going without. Canada of all has poverty. I have stated that “Charity begins at home.”
    Have you read or heard how many people in Mexico have been murdered to date and annually due to drug dealing, drug lords and associating with same? I am fully aware that this is occurring where I reside, specifically in this era of increasing crimes/murders.
    It deeply saddens me that in recent years to today, something which never occurred in past years that Toronto has lost a lot of West Indian nationals, specifically very young ones as teenagers and less and more to these crimes/murders. This month of August as well. It is enough to make not only the family of those victims but ourselves weep, wail and mourn.
    The Federal/Ontario governments have provided additional funding to the Police authorities to combat crimes in general. They have also increased the Police Force. Yet, those crimes/murders continue to escalate.
    Ask yourself, what is the cause of this. I term it as disobedient people and ‘some adults and children’ who have ceased practicing the faith. Whoever commits crimes/murders, specifically murders “which are not premeditated or conducted during break and enter, are godless ones.
    We reserve the right to live in happiness, peace and safety and to be accorded our due rights and dignity. Those who commit crimes do not accord society their due rights as stated. Yes! They are under the yoke of Satan, the cunning one and deceiver.
    As St. Paul stated, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, “No murderer will ‘ever’ enter the Kingdom of God.” Make good note of that.
    We must not be complacent about crimes in general. We must not condone it. We must not participate in it. We must assist our governments and the Police to fight crimes. We must always be on the look out of same.
    One of this is practicing our faith, living it as best as we possibly could, praying to God to assist us in doing so, praying for our governments, the Police authorities and even those who commit crimes/murders.
    If we do this with a believing heart in God, are obedient, humble and have a contrite heart to God, He will assist us. God never forsakes His people. He hears their prayers and will answer it in His own good time. We must be patient for It may not occur overnight but only in God’s time.
    As it is stated, God tests us over and over again to prove our genuine love for Him, our faithfulness and perseverance. He is God and has this right.
    If we wish our God to bless, grace and protect us, we are obligated to give Him due praise and thanks.
    Also read the Psalms which are the Word of God through His prophets.
    Psalm 127:1 – Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build. Unless the Lord guard the city, in vain does the guard keep watch.
    Please take note as I read: “A dead atheist is one who is all dressed up with nowhere to go.”
    A prayer of an atheist: “Oh God, if there is a God, have mercy on my soul if I have a soul.”
    The above surely makes me laugh. They will be saying this prayer when they are dying. Will God answer them? Only He knows!
    Blessed are those who believe.
    May God bless you!

    You did comment about it, did you not?

  10. August 18, 2010

    with the many who have commented fair enough but pastor i think you made an error , to say mary was sinless is in-correct , Roms 3:23 , all sinned ; Isaiah 53;6 all turned to their on way and forsook god , Mary was part of that okay . Christ never exalted Mary , but Mary exalted him . She humble herself and recieve God’s work , that all . No spiritual purpose especially in intercession and salvation only one mediator and one way to God is Christ .

    @Gary:

    Simply put, you do have it all wrong. Is anyone judging you and condemning you personally on this Forum and Website? I did not read about this. As the saying goes: “Whom the cap fits wear it.” This is where guilty conscience or not commence.
    You have formed your own opinion according to your mentality, what is contained in your heart and mind. No one is forcing you to believe what you do not believe and what which you doubt. No one is saying that you have to believe. No one is forcing their godly opinion on you. For one who has a free mind, given to you by no other than God Himself, you reserve the right to take it, believe in it or not or leave it alone. Know that, if you continue in this state until you die, in the end it will be to your eternal detriment for you are rejecting The Word of God – His teachings.
    God gave us a free mind. As it is stated, He will not touch that free mind. He leaves us to accept Him or not.
    We will conform to His Most Holy Will or not, to show our love for Him and if we hope to be with Him forever in eternity in His Heavenly joyful, peaceful, Glorious Kingdom of eternal bliss. This free mind which He has given us will either save us or condemn us for all eternity.
    God has created the world and human beings. He is the Maker and Ruler of it. He has given everyone the intelligence, no matter what their status to accept Him or not. This is their prerogative.
    The Holy Bible is our guidance and as the Church, whatever the denomination, believes and teaches according to Holy Scriptures.
    Please do not state that “it is one’s belief about God.” God does exist. The Holy Bible – Holy Scripture is The Word of God as handed down by the Disciples, according to the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostles, as inspired by His Holy Spirit.
    If you do not doubt the existence of God and who He is, pray to Him and He will reveal himself to you and all what which you need to know about Him. God inspires and grants spiritual enlightenment.
    Those who say that the Bible is a lot of crap, I will simply say, go to the Holy Bible. Granted we are not perfect and there are some who interpret Holy Scriptures to suit their mentality.
    If everyone read and study Holy Scriptures and accept it as “The Word of God” and practice what is contained therein, the world would be a better, happier and peaceful place to live in. They, too, would be far better. What a happy world of people we would be.
    Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “Those who deny Him before all people, He will deny them before His (our) Heavenly Father and those who are ashamed of Him and His Word, He will be ashamed of them when He comes (returns) with His holy angels. Keep this in mind. Eternity, Heaven or Hell is forever and ever. We choose the path, one way or the other.
    Frank Werfel who wrote “The Song of Bernadette” which is a movie stated: “For those who believe no explanation is necessary. For those who do not believe no explanation is possible.”
    Therefore, we believers, no matter what their denomination, we can talk and write all we want we will never be able to convince non-believers. We reserve the right to speak and write of our beliefs.
    Know this, Satan, the enemy of God and of our souls who want nothing good for us, this one who was thrown out of Heaven with his fallen angels, the devil, the dragon, the snake, the detractor and destroyer of souls for his eternal cauldron of everlasting fire is at the forefront, top, below, centre, sideways and in the middle of this. God knows this too well.
    Satan hates us because he knows that he has lost it all – Heaven – because of his pride, disobedience, stubborn and rebelliousness. The wicked one, the deceiver knows more than you. He is jealous of us and also knows that as long as we are living we have recourse to God and have the opportunity to be saved. What would he not do and place in hearts who are weak of spirit and who deny God and the faith in God to doubt and deny God and to criticize and lambaste those who teach and preach The Word of God and make evil statements about them.
    Satan, on his high and mighty horse of pride said to God: “I will not serve – You!” and “I will not listen to you!”
    St. Michael the Archangel, threw Satan out of Heaven saying: “Who is like unto God.” Keep in mind that “pride comes before the fall. This is exactly what you are presently doing.
    Pray to God for His blessing, grace, enlightenment and inspiration. If it is good for you and your soul, He will grant it. God knows that it is good for you. So do I and those who believe in God and practice their faith. God wants all His children to come to the knowledge of the truth.
    Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to The Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen! …May Thy Kingdom come, may Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…

    @Gene, Toronto:

    I’m not there to have a debate about the life of St. Agustin, he lived his life as it seems fit to him.What this is about is people with religious beliefs who write about things, thinking they have the truth because of what their religion teaches, and what their religion concept of God is, that is the concept everyone should adopt and if not you are doomed, you’re Satan, you are called an atheist. The problem is not about who God is, or weather someone believes in God, it is the concept or definition of God, what is God, that is what we can’t agree on, You are a Catholic and your religion tells you what God is in it’s teachings and doctrines, you’re entitled to hold that belief, I’m not there to tell you you’re wrong to hold that belief, but when you write something and make statements, don’t I have a right to ask If theses statements are true, especially most of the times they are personal beliefs which are propagated as the truth, and if I ask questions or differ from you, why I’m I judged,and condemned is it just because I’m questioning your religious beliefs of which I do not subscribe to. We all have beliefs including me, but, are these beliefs true.

    I’m not proclaiming to know everything, I’m not vain, and I’m smart enough to know that I do not know every thing as some of you profess to be, the holder of truths. Your religion nor any other religion does not have the Patent for the truth, the truth is universal it belongs to no religion. The truth about God is there for everyone to discover, seek and you shall find, God is not found in dogma and churches only. I will live you with this You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

    What is it that makes you think that I’m generalizing.Why are you replying you’re comment to me,when I was not the one that made the statement regarding the beliefs of rich and poor people. You’re comments should be directed to Pastor Rawls., he made those statements here is his quote ‘Two of the most difficult groups of people who don’t believe in God are the very rich and the very poor”

    You mentioned something that really got my attention, you said quote “It is beyond my comprehension why there are some peaceful countries and why others are not” and at the same time you came up with the belief that is was because quote “It is because they are not genuinely Christians and practicing ones”, what an arrogant statement, typical of religion fanaticism. Why is it that you think your religion with your God should be accepted by everyone and “presto”
    everything would be alright, what wishful thinking. There are so many countries who’s population are followers of your religion and their country is not immune from the things you describe as evil.Example Brazil and Mexico, large Christian population , don’t you see the poverty, crime and misery, What about the country you live in,the atrocities committed by your religion Christianity to the Native peoples, these people were living peacefully and had their own religion, then came along Christianity and the rest is history. The reason you cannot comprehend such things is because you have the tunnel vision given to you by religion, set it aside, use your God given mind to think and I’m sure that you will understand one day why people are living the way they are rather than living the way they were created to be.Why is it you think religion has the solution to mankind problems, it never has and never will.The solution is us , we need to look within our selves, that is where the answer lies, not in someone dogma beliefts and lies we must examine ourselves, wake up. Why do believe the problems of mankind is going to go away by believing in Sister (Saint) Faustina Kowalska.

    I’m not there to offend you about your religion, you have a right to believe what ever you want. What your religion teaches you and what you believe should not be used as a yard stick to judge other people and wanting to recommend it as the only way to solving their problems, this has been used many times over in history and nothing changed, is it not time to ask questio9ns , wake up .

    The media that is wholly owned by jews portray black people negatively so as to stop us getting together to pool our knowledge and reasource, so they can go in and look like heroes.

    @Gary:
    Please do not quote St. Augustine in this without knowing and/or mentioning his life, whatever you know of him in this respect.
    St. Augustine was born and raised a Catholic Christian. He went on to live an unholy life. His mother, Monica (St. Monica), a holy lady, prayed for him perseveringly for approximately 30 years.
    Our loving, patient, compassionate, merciful and forgiving God who knows, sees and hears all things and who takes everything into account and consideration will do what He has to do in his own good time.
    Through the fervent, obedient, humble and patient prayers of his beloved mother, God eventually granted her the wish which she prayed for, conversion of her son and St. Augustine returned to practicing his Catholic faith. He gave up his frivolous life. He became an outspoken Catholic. He wrote books and also of his life.
    He once put his head where the Host was in the Monstrance which is called the Tabernacle, where The Blessed Sacrament is exposed. He said: “What do we have here? Too late have I known you.” In reality, it was not too late but that he thought how much time I have wasted “in not loving and serving my God.” May God be blest and praised.
    The Pastor, whatever denomination he is, did not insinuate that those who are not of his religion are atheists or so I hope. If he did and those who are of this opinion, they have committed a grave error and sin in the sight of God, accusing others of what which they are not.
    God knows our hearts. He who cannot be deceived and nothing is hidden from knows the extent of our faith. We must be careful about accusations towards others who are not of the same faith and/or beliefs as we are. This is unloving and does not please God.
    An atheist is one who does not believe in God; that God did not create the world and is not the Ruler of the world. If God did not, who did? Can they answer that? it surely is not through evolution as those jokers as I call them who lack godly blessing, graces, enlightenment and inspiration believe.
    It is stated in Holy Scriptures: “If our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled for those who are perishing; that God has blinded the eyes of the unbelievers.”
    These refuse to recognize, acknowledge and worship God. I say, woe to them and their stupidity who are governed by Satan’s whims and wiles who roams around the world with his evil spirits seeking whom he may devour for his everlasting cauldron, Hell of fire. I do not wish this on anyone. May God protect and save us. Think of yourself in this eternal detriment. They will do well to recognize God and to serve Him.
    As the Pastor correctly stated as contained in Holy Scripture: “Fools say in their heart there is no God.” I quote this when specifically the opportunity presents itself and calls for it.
    We can utilize the powerful words from Holy Scripture to refute such people. It is not necessary to argue with them. The teaching and words of Holy Scripture are sufficient to make our Christian point.
    There are those who state that I believe in God but I do not go to church, refuse to go to church and who say, I read my Bible and pray to God and that religion is a personal matter. They do make a grave mistake by not practicing their faith and going to church which is a condition among performing good works in Jesus’ Name for obtaining eternal salvation. They have not yet rejected God and therefore cannot be considered atheists or even agnostics, the latter who is neither here or there, who doubt the existence of God.
    Let us pray for them. God expects this of us. We are to pray for everyone of the world and not mainly for ourselves, our needs and wants that God will save everyone. Only God saves! More to come…>
    God bless!

    Hey Pastor…. I agree with you for the most part. But, Do you believe that Jesus was not created but begotten? Do you believe the Word that forever existed became flesh? You quote a lot from John… John teaches about the Holy Trinity. Mary needed a Savior,… and her Magnificat says it all….. but God became flesh in the Form of Jesus,,, Born of the sinless Blessed Virgin Mary… doesn’t that make her the Mother of “God the Son”(Jesus)? Remember she is not worship people!

    Furthermore,, the reason you are called a Pastor today is because your Founder Martin Luther said you have no free will…… and your article speaks soo much of Free Will. Are you looking at the One True Faith? The one Jesus (God) Created. Come back to real Theology.

    One Love!

    @Gary:

    You are not corrrect and are generalizing. There are some rich people who do believe in God and there are some poor people who do believe in God. There are some rich and poor people who continue to practice the faith. There may be some rich and poor people who are weak of faith and who have ceased practicing the faith. This exists in every society of the world.
    There are some rich people of the world who perform good works in assisting the poor. You obviously do not know them and may never know them when we consider the billions of people throughout the world.
    Just recently Bill Gates challenged the rich to give away some of their money. He is an intelligent man. I saw him on CNN, Larry King Live. This man looks so peaceful of all. He may have recognized that “what really is money and riches” and that one day he will not be able to take it into eternity with him. It is only useful while he is residing on this earth. Some of the rich have taken up his challenge and are doing just that in their environment.
    If there are Dominicans who may be rich and well-to-do assist the poor of their country, they will be amassing spiritual wealth.
    It is also stated that the poor are the ones who seek God and pray to HIm. They are poor and therefore they realize how much they need God.
    God who loves us all, the rich, poor, famous and infamous with no exception and who is impartial does assist them. The problem is some of them may continue to be dissatisfied with and do not appreciate what they have. Therefore, they are blinded and may reject God, blaming them for their woes when all along God helped them. The enemy of God and of our souls is very well instrumental in this.
    My parents were not rich. They may not have been poor by “poor standards”. However, they were strong in their Catholic faith and persevered to the end.
    If we have faith and a strong one at that, we will never give up on God, no matter what our status, rich or poor for the day will come when we will have to render unto God the things that are of God, primarily, in our earthly life.
    Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “If you have food, clothing and housing, you will be satisfied with that.” The poor do not know how happy they are, even happier than the rich.
    In James, it is stated: “Tell the rich in this present age to do good so as to amass spiritual wealth.”
    Whether we are rich, well-to-do or poor, each of us have a mandate from God. When we die God will not ask us if we were rich or poor but what have we done with the gifts and resources He gave us. He will hold us accountable for what we have done and failed to do, if we have not exercised it and wasted it and in futility.
    I am not speaking about places where there are consistent unrest, violence, wars and terrorisms. These are man-made as Satan possesses the heart of wicked people. I feel sorry for those innocent people and pray for them that God may put a hand and relieve their burdens.
    It is beyond my comprehension why there are some peaceful countries and why others are not. When I contemplate on this, it may be that the Lord has revealed to me through the inspiration of His Holy Spirit, “It is because they are not genuinely Christians and practicing ones.” Some of them do not worship God at all. They may worship cows, other animals and trees, even human beings whom God created. This is their downfall and misery.
    Our Lord, The Divine Mercy said to a saintly nun, now departed, Sister (Saint) Faustina Kowalska of Poland: “Unless mankind turns to My Merciful Heart there will be no peace.” Comprehend this coming from Our Lord Jesus Christ. Happiness and peace will not be achieved without calling on God and through the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord said: “Apart from Me you can do nothing.” Everything else is temporary and just a band-aid – not lasting.
    I wish you God’s enlightenment.

    @Typical Dominican:
    I am a Catholic Christian, with the help of God, one who stands up for the faith, speaking up for it and defending it as well.
    Do you know the Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit? One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is Patience. Patience in reading as well. Do you possess it? It appears that you are lacking in patience. Have you not read a book or books which contain numerous pages? Also the newspapers?
    You probably view television, no doubt for endless hours. You may talk on the telephone for hours as well and surf the Internet for hours. Why consider this information too long which is for the benefit of all readers that they may save their souls.
    Pray to God for this grace and gift of the Holy Spirit – Patience. Heaven is not obtained without it, overall patience. It is something which you need to cultivate in Jesus’ Name. More to come…>

    God’s peace!

    @Elle Paul: So true…I would prefer to live like he did and find out that he doesnt as opposed to living like he doesnt then die and find out he is real. But I walk by faith and not by sight so I know that my God is real and that there for the grace of God go I.

    Elie Paul, hold on to that testimony of Almighty God, our God of Spirit and Truth, our God who is Love, in the Person of Jesus Christ.

    I know Him indeed, for I live by His Wisdom through the teachings and guidance of His Holy Spirit who has revived (reawakened) my sleeping or dead soul, by faith. Yes, God is the Living God, in Jesus Christ, who writes His Word on our hearts and put them in our minds. We do not need anyone to teach us to know Him, for He is indeed our God, who will make Himself known to us, as long as we apply faith in Him. Jeremiah 31: 31-34

    O God, Heavenly Father, I give your praise and honor, the glory belong to You, dear God. Many of us have accepted the Life of Love, which You bestowed to us, because of our faith in Your Son, Jesus Christ. I asked on behalf of Your people on this earth, O God, for Your continuous guidance and protection from the evil one. For though we are blessed with the strength of Your Love, we are still people with the nature of flesh, who can easily breakdown.

    Help us to remember O God, that we have victory in You, so that we might remain strong always, and to walk in the Life of Spirit and Truth, where we able to fight against the enemy, who disguise himself as a thief, as he comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

    Teach us dear God, to remain in hope for the Life of abundance, not money and material things, but the traits of Love, in Spirit and Truth, that Jesus died so we might have. I pray this, in His name, Your only begotten Son. Amen!

    Pastor Rawls the things you write about bewilders me. that sometimes I wonder are you for real or just writing for writing sake. Do ever read or think about what you’re writing. Don’t you read to broaden you knowledge and understanding of things and the world around you or you just want to remain in your own world of Pastor Rawls thinking as to what you want to believe.I’m curious as to who bestowed the title “Pastor, ” to you.

    First of what makes you think that the things you say are true, The truth is not what you Pastor Rawls believe to be truth or making general statements is not true either or quoting the Bible as reference to bring credibility to what you precisive to be the truth.The problem with you, and others like you is trying to form a concept as to what God is, and once someone does not fit your concept they are called Atheist. Why is it the concept you have based on your religious beliefs about God as to who and what God is, that is the concept everyone should have.

    You have a right to believe in your Jesus and all the things that are associated with him, there is nothing wrong with what you profess to believe you have aright to believe that. Why is it then if someone has a different view than yours they are classified Atheist. In regards to some statements you made quote “Two of the most difficult groups of people who don’t believe in God are the very rich and the very poor” what a nonsensical and foolish statement, this shows what religious can do, religion does three things quite effectively divides people, controls people and Deludes people. Let me remind you also with or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things, but for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. Let me say to you also God is not what you imagine or what you think you understand. If you understand you have failed. ~Saint Augustin

    I love when truth finds itself out into the open. The Word of God declares that blind eyes will open and strongholds will be broken. If one says there is no God then so it will be for him. But if he casts his foolish and limit opinion and intellect aside he will not be able to contain the glory and majesty of such an amazing God that we are so blessed to have. People get so used to poverty and crime and so much mess in the world that they believe that these things are the end of it all. Look beyond the suffering, so you think that our Daddy would make us suffer liek this without purpose and glory in the end? Wait till we start trusting Him and giving all the trust and praise He desires, then these things will be no more. The Bible says that every good gift is from the Lord himself, He is Light and He is Love, if anything is not one of these then it is NOT from our Master. Give Him your all, call upon His name, let Him in, give Him a chance and see how much His love for you will manifest into so much abundance that at the end of the day you can hardly contain how great our God is!

    I’ve had hundreds of reasons to believe the existence of God. One young lady asked me the other day, what would i say if i die and find out there really is no God. I turned around with a smile and said, i know there is: but just in case there isn’t i would have added 20 more years on my life. Lots of rest, no drunkeness, wife of one man, drug free body, stress free life more money in my pocket because of less worldly pleasure. Yeah i think so. But just in case you are in doubt, try holding your breath for 1 minute. Yes Lord! you reign in all majesty and splendor. You are real.
